Advice & Tips: Be careful if you're on multiple medications that can put your organs at risk. None of my Dr's warned me about this and if I hadn't forced the issue they wouldn't have sent me to a Nephrologist. Luckily, he took me or all the meds that were doing damage before to much permanent damage was done. However, now there are certain meds I can never take, otherwise I risk more severe renal failure. Be Your own advocate or find one to help you.

Advice & Tips: I used to have really bad acid reflux for about two years. Then, when I was at The Menninger Clinic for nine weeks to basically retrieve my life from certain doom, I learned from one of the observant nurses there, Daniel, that I didn't take my pain meds with food. He asked me if I had acid reflux and I said, yes, quite badly. So from then on I have taken my vicodin and aleve with food and my acid reflux has released me from it's fiery grip.
